In terms of the worldwide adoption of zero-emission transport, lithium-ion battery technology is still leading the race. However, it may be a mistake to assume that will always be the case, and that there is an inevitable shift from traditional gasoline and diesel fuels to electric vehicles. The hydrogen fuel cell vehicle could yet be ...

When it comes to today’s energy market, demand is growing, supply is primarily based on fossil fuels, and global energy-related CO2 emissions hit an all-time high last year. There can’t be many people left on the planet who haven’t yet got the message that, when it comes to the generation of energy, we need radical ...

One of the strengths of plastic is its durability. This, however, has turned out to be one of its most significant downsides. In a world based on consumerism and replacement, products that last for a very long time have begun to pile up due to their durability. Single-use plastics arguably pose the biggest challenge of ...

The sprawling city of Shenzhen in northern China has a population of over 20 million people and creates around 15,000 metric tons of waste every day. No surprise, perhaps, that it’s the site of what will be, when it’s operational, the world’s largest waste-to-energy plantto date. Waste-to-energy technology turns urban waste into fuel. Incineration of waste ...

Across the world, the waste produced by our societies is largely seen as a problem – but could it instead be an opportunity? Increasingly, waste-to-energy solutions are being deployed to convert trash into renewable energy that can be far cleaner than the average power generated through traditional energy production technologies. Yet while waste-to-energy processing has been fairly widely adopted in Europe ...

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, but in its gaseous form is very rare on Earth; it exists mostly in the form of chemical compounds such as water, hydrocarbons and generally speaking organic matter. That means that we need to employ industrial processes to produce useable hydrogen gas. Currently, the most commonly ...
